Listening to art. Playing with audio. Sounding out technology. Composing in code. Rewinding the soundscape.

Past Week at

  • Weird. My automated weekly Twitter aggregator decided, all on its own, to post on Sunday rather than Saturday. ->
  • The week’s @djunto has 31 pieces, with two full days to go. Here's a helpful 320kbps MP3 of the massive AIFF source: ->
  • It was darker before the dusk this evening, the storm breaking at land’s end, sky overhead stormy but in the distance lit by the waning sun. ->
  • RIP, Robert Zildjian (89), of the namesake centuries-old Turkish cymbal-making family; founder of rival Sabian Cymbals. ->
  • I get Bcc'd on soul-retrieval SKU requisitions. RT @Le_Berger: @disquiet It's like you have a direct link with the grim reaper or something. ->
  • RIP, composer and educator Edward Charles Mattila (b. 1927), via @jcharney ->
  • Very sad. Learned via @vuzhmusic that Jeffrey Melton (@nofi), who participated in many @djunto projects, including the first, passed away. ->
  • Here's something I wrote about @nofi in 2011: And here's more of his sounds: ->
  • Man, @naotko has reminded me that the late @nofi was the compiler of the main @twitter list of @djunto participants: ->
  • "I did not believe I could be so sad to learn someone I'd never met passed away." From a fellow admirer of @nofi. ->
  • Indeed. MT @happypuppyrecs: sad to learn of @nofi's death. at least his musical creations will be available for us to remember him with. ->
  • It's not that it's odd that I am saddened by @nofi's death despite having never met him; I am sad in part because I never met him. ->
  • Dang you, April Fools. Totally fell for the "Nick Cave is Nick Cave" joke: ->
  • This is the page for @nofi's funeral home: It includes a button to "Leave Audio Memory." ->
  • Tuesday noon siren does battle with Steely Dan on the radio. ->
  • Next class in course on sound that you teach is about iconography, what sound looks like, and two Christian Marclay exhibits open. Perfecto. ->
  • Space is the place. MT @janeshin: Feel like I'm writing my letters in outer space as I listen to this set: ->
  • All afternoon thought a mouse was under the house. Then realized I'd left my iPod in my jacket playing a collection of @alln4tural tracks. ->
  • That waning period after April Fools' Day where so much music PR seems like a failed prank attempt at writing failed PR. ->
  • Cool. @Dalkey_Archive published William Gaddis' letters. Seems he wrote one lifelong letter with no paragraph breaks addressed to "everyone" ->
  • Due to death of @nofi (aka Jeffrey Melton) the week’s @djunto (#66) is a tribute to him (not the scheduled riff on #-of-beast backmasking). ->
  • This week’s @djunto tribute to the late @nofi has gone live: And it went to the email list. ->
  • Thanks. It feels right. RT @vuzhmusic: @disquiet @nofi @djunto I'm glad you're doing this – I'm glad we're doing this. ->
  • Psyched to see that SoundSelf passed its fundraising goal on ->
  • In the week’s @djunto project, we play live alongside a live tape of our recently deceased comrade, @nofi. Listen: ->
  • You get an email with the phrase “markdown madness”and you think it’s a about a writing/coding app. ->
  • Cliff Martinez appears to have scored Nicolas Winding Refn’s new Ryan Gosling film, Only God Forgives: #extravagant ->
  • Yeah. Drive x Oldboy x Kill Bill x Triad Election – Hangover 2. RT @dizzybanjo: @disquiet oh awesome, more Drive :D ->
  • That police siren was way close to the house before I realized it had nada to do with the Ephraim Wegner / Cem Güney music I'm listening to. ->
  • I've already read three of the five novels nominated for a Hugo (Grant, Robinson, Scalzi). This surprises me. ->
